Speaking to El Chiringuito TV, new Real Madrid captain Nacho Fernandez has claimed that he wishes to see the club sign both Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe.

Nacho is now the new Real Madrid skipper following the exit of Karim Benzema. The Frenchman’s departure, coupled with those of Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Mariano Diaz, has reduced the Merengues’ attack to bare-bones.

With only Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes left as the senior attackers, Real Madrid are in the market for reinforcements to the frontline.

There has been a lot of talk about a move for Tottenham superstar and England captain Harry Kane for the upcoming summer.

However, at the same time, there have been reports claiming that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez might not go for the 29-year-old as it might affect his plan to sign Mbappe next year.

Nacho, though, does not see any such issues and wishes to sign Kane this year and move for Mbappe next year. In fact, the 33-year-old veteran went on to add that he would go for the latter’s transfer this summer itself if the decision was up to him.

“Harry Kane would fit in perfectly this summer and Mbappe would come in next summer,” Nacho said.

“Mbappe? If it were up to me, I would bring him this summer,” he added.

Highlighting the need to reinforce the frontline, the Real Madrid skipper claimed: “Important players have left us and we need goals.”

While Nacho might have hopes of seeing Mbappe arrive at the club this summer itself, club president Perez has already confirmed that a move for the French superstar will not take place this year.

In a recent interaction with a fan, the Real Madrid supremo confirmed that he wishes to sign Mbappe, but will not do so this year.

A fan asked Perez: “Florentino, will you sign Mbappé?” In response, Perez said“Yes. But not this year.”

What now remains to be seen is whether the Real Madrid president does indeed go after Kane’s signing or decides to call off the pursuit of the England captain so that it does not affect ‘Operation Mbappe’ for 2024.

Report: Real Madrid reactivate interest to sign €50 million-rated defender

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
